What is Different About the 2020 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid?

Everybody has a different thought process when it comes to buying a car. Everybody has different things they are looking for. Some people are in the market for power and performance, while others focus on something efficient and reliable. It is not an easy task to go car shopping.

So, what do you do when you have competing ideas about what is important to you? You need something powerful, but you don’t want to burn through fuel too quickly. An SUV like the 2020 Toyota RAV4 sounds nice, but is it efficient? The hybrid option might be the way to go, but is it powerful enough? Let’s look at them both and compare them.

2020 Toyota RAV4 versus 2020 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid

Of course, the main difference between these two vehicles is obvious. The hybrid option for the RAV4 gives drivers some more range in their choices. You don’t have to feel stuck to sedans if you want something that is efficient. It is also part of the mission at Toyota to make more efficient and reliable cars. There are a lot of similarities between the two options that you can see below.

Mechanically, the engines are very similar, but the hybrid obviously benefits from an electric engine. It is also limited by the number of trim level options it has. If you want pure power, then you’ll want the Limited TRD Pro trim level that is not available in a hybrid form.
